HD will go the path of Betamax
Let's face it, who is going to buy a player that does not play their favorite movies? Not me. As I was torn between the movies I would not be able to watch no matter which format I chose, I did the only thing I could, WAIT. For now, I will wait for the war of formats to get to the next level, and even then, if HD is still around, I may wait. The scoop from other web sources is that there is another contender coming into the ring. Who is to say that while Blue, and HD are fighting it out, somehting else doesn't come along and snatch the carrot from both of them.
The big push by Comcast, using new VOD HD boxes with their super fast fiber cable system, will snatch up their share of the HD dollars from both HD and Blue. I have a big DVD collection that I seldom watch. I watched most of them exactly one time. If I had rented them, and rented the ones I watched twice, I would be thousands of dollars ahead. Once the VOD service is going strong, there will be no more trips to Blockbuster, so sell your stock now, while there is still time. VOD will be the end of Blockbuster unless they find a new game. So HD VOD will bring the end to the Blue,HD and rental markets. Not to say that they will go away over night, but just like Beta, it will move slowly into oblivion
